COMPACTION CHARACTERISTICS OF SMOOTH WHEELED AND VIBRATING ROAD ROLLERS

THE REPORT DESCRIBES COMPARATIVE FIELD STUDIES OF SMOOTH WHEELED AND VIBRATING ROAD ROLLERS TO ASSESS THE PERFORMANCE CARRIED OUT IN TERMS OF COMPACTION OF SOILS, WATER-BOUND MACADAM, AND BITUMINOUS SURFACES. THE RESULTS INDICATE THAT WHILE THE VIBRATING ROLLER IS VERY EFFECTIVE ON NON-COHESIVE SOILS AND ON WATER-BOUND MACADAM. THE SMOOTH WHEELED ROAD ROLLER IS EFFECTIVE IN COMPACTING PRE-MIXED ASPHALT MACADAM. /TRRL/
